Dalvinder Singh provides an interdisciplinary analysis of the legal aspects of prudential supervision.
This gives the reader a broader understanding of the core processes of banking supervision.
By using the UK as a case study, a comparison is made with the US to illustrate the different ways of approaching the issues. The author examines the legal as well as the theoretical, economic, political and policy issues that underpin the purpose of prudential supervision, such as corporate governance, enforcement sanctions, the role of external auditors and accountability of financial regulators.
These are considered in the context of broad-policy considerations which render prudential supervision necessary, namely financial stability and depositor protection.
The book will be of interest to academics, policymakers, regulators and practitioners, and equally will serve specialist undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in law, management and economics which focus on financial regulation.
